Sign, Electrical, Security Companies need the “Rudy Clamp”

WHY? because it really does get expensive, for companies that use stainless steel banding to invest in banding, buckles and tools, when they may only use them 10 times a year. The solution is the “Rudy “Clamp. You only need to invest in the 1/2″ stainless steel coil and purchase the required amount of “Rudy” Clamps. When you have the SS banding and the “Rudy” Clamp you can make a clamp, as small as 1 ft. in diameter to as large as 100 ft. in diameter or more. (the largest length of your SS coil).

So lets look at the Sign Industry – Small sign shop makes a sign and his customer wants him to attach it to a light standard. He cannot screw the sign to the light standard as this violates the electrical codes. Solution uses the ‘Rudy” Clamp with the stainless steel banding. This will not damage the light standard and will hold his sign in place for many years. Also the sign manufacturer did not have to purchase any special tools. All he need to install the “Rudy” Clamp was a pare of tin snips and a Robertson screwdriver. Sign maker sells the banding and the “RUDY” Clamp, with the sign job. Makes a profit on both and when he installs the job he does not need to call in a special installer also saving money. (Please visit our web site and watch the YOU TUBE video “RUDY” Clamp.

Now lets look at the Electrical Industry. Electrician needs to install a disconnect box to a light standard or a concrete pillar, BUT! they are not allowed to screw into the standard or the pillar. What most electricians do,is obtain “U” channel and threaded rod. They first have to cut the “U” channel to length (2 pieces) then they have to cut the threaded rod (2 pieces) assemble the “U” channel with the threaded rods using 4 nuts. Then attach the disconnect box. After doing all of this, it has probably cost them wear and tear on their equipment, cost of “U” channel, threaded rods and nuts. But most of all about 30 to 45 minutes worth of labor. As well a lost production while accomplishing this work. Using the “RUDY” Clamp with the SS banding they could have accomplished this in about 10 minutes or less. (costs go down, production goes up and NO damages to anything).

How about the Security Company. They need to hang security cameras on pillar inside buildings or under bridges or attached to light standards. They basically use the same system as electricians. The “RUDY Clamp, will speed up the installation, will not scratch or harm the pillars in the offices. They can accomplish this without using special banding tools. (keeps cost down, easy to install and improves margins)

You can see the “Rudy” Clamp on our YOU Tube video located on our web site or call BAND-N-GO Inc. We will provide free information to help you become more productive.

Prevent SS Cable Ties from Cutting Cable Jackets

CT5 installation

By using the CT-5 Manual Tool with Tension Adjustment and cutter you can prevent the accidental cutting of a cable jacket. The CT-5 automatically cuts to the desired tension you preset. It is also small enough to allow you easy access into tight spots. When you want a cable tie to last for years and you do not want to harm the cable jacket, We recommend our Stainless Steel Roller cable tie with the CT-5

Proper Tool Use Made Easy

In industrial settings, the use of the right tools makes all the difference. Choosing the right tool for a project and using it properly means guaranteeing efficiency, effectiveness, and productivity, thereby staying cost effective. It also means safety is assured—a critical aspect of any job.

Oftentimes we have found that new and prospective distributor customers have never used stainless steel banding before, and they need to know more about how to do an installation. Also, people new to the industry need to develop product knowledge, so they can always keep their customers informed on proper use.

At other times, contractors begin a new job in which stainless steel banding must be used, and they need to know how the tools work. Whatever the case may be, we feel it’s necessary to keep our customers in the know, which is why we created a forum to help.  Our YouTube channel is dedicated to showcasing the use of a variety of our products, acting as a ready source of training and education.

On it you’ll find quick, easy steps for using our banding and cable tie products and tools: the BT-200 Bantam Banding Tool, the JR100 Junior Tool, the Rudy Clamp™, the “Q Band”, cable ties installation, banding installation. These short videos provide detailed information on the tools, construction, features, and installation of cable ties and bands.  By watching each, you have access to visual displays that instruct and inform.

New Mounting Plate Attaches without Drilling or Cutting to Create a Secure Fastening Solution for Fixtures

In our last blog we introduced you to the innovative Rudy Clamp™, a secure, low cost fastening solution with wide ranging applications. We would now like to announce: the Rudy Mounting Plate™.  rudymount1

Made from high density plastic, Rudy Mounting Plates™ will not rust or deteriorate and are for use with ½” light duty stainless steel banding.  Designed to securely connect electrical boxes, panels, and signs to columns, beams, or struts, the mounting plates are a quick and easy solution in situations where direct fixture mounting is difficult or unsafe.  Installation takes approximately 3 minutes, saving time and no special tools are required, saving labor.

Fixtures are easily attached to the mounting plate using standard ¾” wood screws. Using the Rudy Mounting Plate™ in combination with stainless steel banding and a Rudy Clamp™ creates a universal clamping solution suitable for any horizontal or vertical application.rudymount

The Rudy Mounting Plates™ allow fixtures to be attached to surfaces that cannot be drilled into. For example, if security cameras need to be affixed to a light standard in a parking lot, it isn’t safe to risk drilling into the pole and damaging the wiring. When the Rudy Mounting Plate™ is attached to the pole with banding and a Rudy Clamp™, the camera is easily attached to the plate. Or, if the surface is concrete, no drilling is required: rudy clamp photos 001the mounting plate allows a fixture to be installed quickly and without special tools or drills.

The recyclable Rudy Mounting Plate™ combined with the Rudy Clamp™ offers the user a choice in mounting options that are safe, fast, reliable, and long lasting. Contact the experts at Band-N-Go today to learn more about our new Rudy Mounting Plates™.
